Planet Kapow 34 : Panama City to Turbo (Darién gap)

Hola Amigos!

 

Here we go, the big moment when we crossed from the wonderful world of central america, to the unknown that is south america.

 

We missed out on the cheap flights from Panama to Colombia, and the $500 5 day yacht cruise wasn’t exciting anyone, so we found a 3rd option. Get to the eastern Panamanian coast and try to catch little boats/rafts/turtles to make our way to Turbo.

In the end it took us 4 days and a lot of waiting around…

But, I will say that it was definitely worth the experience. I have spent so much time sitting in a wooden boat complaining about how much my ass hurt.

 

Mujeres y Caballeros, here is ep 34! Make sure to check out Lachie’s writeup which goes right into the details of the journey to Colombia.
